Meet Our Newest Client: Asian & Pacific Islander American Scholarship Fund
Yesterday, we officially signed our newest client: Asian & Pacific Islander American Scholarship Fund. APIASF’s mission is to “see that all Asian American and Pacific Islanders have access to higher education and resources that cultivate their academic, personal and professional success”. Since its founding in 2003, they have distributed over $100 million in scholarships to over 6,000 scholars. More than 60% of those scholars live at or below the national poverty level. Despite the thousands who did receive scholarships, about 95% of applicants did not receive financial aid. The growing gap between the amount of funding the organization has and the need for scholarships leaves a lot of potential to increase donations and give more scholarships.
We will be working with APIASF on a total rebranding and digital overhaul. Parts of this work will include a new logo, website, event branding, and a custom donation application. This work will help support their efforts to increase brand awareness, solicit more individual donations, and become less dependent on federal and corporate donations in coming years.
We at Left+Right, are thrilled to welcome APIASF as our newest client and help them increase access to education to Asian and Pacific Islander Americans.
If you or anyone you know is currently seeking college financial aid and identifies as Asian American or Pacific Islander American, APIASF is currently accepting applications at http://apiasf.org/scholarship_apiasf.html. The deadline for applications is January 11, 2017.
